Race Car Party Invitations and Stamps
Choosing your invitation is the equivalent of the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party, even a casual party!
Race Car Party Table Linens
You have many options to create a fun and sporty NASCAR look. Your choice will ultimately come down to a combination of what your room looks like and how daring you feel. Party Idea Pros first choice is to create a look using Black and White striped or checked tablecloths with fun accent colors. It works great with the Arte Felguerez Formula 1 car sculptures — just the right combination of classy and fun. Rent white or black folding chairs.
For a safer look, either choose a single color or any combination of the above colors. Choose either a matching napkin or a black & white stripe napkin. Use a matching lamour chair ties on simple black or white folding chairs or coordinating chair covers all with black chair ties. If you want to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; stick with white unless you prefer a more vintage look.
Likewise, if you are hosting an auto racing theme party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine, in fact, place mats will also work great, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid colored paper. If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests. Laminate it and tie with personalized ribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.
Hotrod and NASCAR Race Car Party Centerpieces
Arrange floral centerpieces in NASCAR theme mugs! Below are a few examples of possible looks followed by a few mug options.
Race Car Party Favors
Add some fun to your tables. Party Idea Pros love these NASCAR antenna balls. Consider using them as party favors/table decor or as place cards. Add a colored straw topped off with a NASCAR Antenna Topper to each guest’s water glass. Write your guest of honor’s name and party date on the bottom of the antenna ball.

Expensive but fun! Primates with a need for speed! They’re revved up and ready to go! Each Hot Rod Monkey Bender includes a posable magnetic primate with racing helmet and detachable steering wheel, all packed with a fast-paced tin car! When you’re done racing, driver and steering wheel go inside the tin car—just add the plug to safely store.
